Lazy November Day......

Carter is doing so good. Getting bigger all of the time! Kennedy has been taking care of him. Here she is in her princess dress keeping an eye on him. I am pretty sure he is just listening to her talk. I have a feeling this is only the beginning.

Daddy hanging out with Kennedy and Carter. The media room downstairs, which he refers to as the "man cave" has now been taken over. The "man cave" isn't just for men anymore!!!

Showing off the jacket she got while driving her car. Very stylish!
Happy Birthday Kennedy!!!
We are a little behind in getting the pictures out, but Kennedy had a great birthday with her family.
Kennedy is putting the Mickey Mouse candle on her cupcake.
Thank you Nona and Papa for the great car!

Another first for Kennedy. Nana and Katie C took K-Train to the movies for the first time yesterday. They saw Madagascar and she fell in love with "I like to move it, move it." Enjoy.
Big day for the Cornhuskers! Thanks to the Compton's garb yesterday, the Huskers got a big win over the Jayhawks. GO HUSKERS!

I think Carter is wondering what he got into! Kennedy is obviously a little animated and Tony and I can't stop kissing him. He poses alot in thought.....Things that make you go hmmm.....

Just a few pictures of the little prince. We had an appointment yesterday to see how he is doing and everything is going great! He is already past his birth weight and after he ate yesterday he had taken in 2 ounces! Yippee!!! I don't think this surprises anyone, but our kids are eaters! Thanks for all the kind thoughts and prayers. Carter is doing great and Kennedy has taken to him nicely. She is already reading him books and loves to help with the diapers! Enjoy!

Another big day for the Comptons!!!

Carter and I have been sitting outside the voting booths eyeing anyone that looks like they voted for Obama and he is puking on them. Gotta go, here comes the lunch rush...

Keeping the faith.

Monkey business.

Since mom is going to be a little busy for a while, we thought it would be good to get Kennedy a monkey, her favorite, to take care of while mom is helping Carter. Dad made the mistake of not noticing the monkey sings "If you are happy and you know it". Once he found this out, he secretly learned how to shut off the power so we would not have to hear the song for the thousandth time in 24 hours. Little did we know we have a little rocket scientist on our hands. Wow.


We got home with our son at 5pm yesterday. Everyone is doing great and I don't know if Kennedy or dad is prouder. (Notice the bright yellow I'm the big sister shirt)

Update on Beth and Carter:

Everyone is doing well. Beth came home yesterday. She is feeling very good. Carter is doing well too. He got a little water on his lungs from the delivery. Must have taken the first breath a little too quickly. As a precaution, they wanted to give him antibiotics to make sure he didn't get pneumonia or an infection. They do that through an IV and so he had to go to the NICU at Stormont. He is doing great. Beth is now feeding him and he is already gaining weight (our kids seem to have no trouble eating). The dose of antibiotics will not be done until Monday evening so they have to keep him there until then. If everything goes well, we will be bring him home Monday night or Tuesday morning.

Since we had not dealt with the NICU with Kennedy, it was a little scary and overwhelming. We quickly saw how fortunate we are and that we are happy that they are taking this precaution to make sure he is healthy and strong when he comes home.

Thanks for all the calls, text, emails, prayers, etc. I will post again on Tuesday with an update and hopefully report that Kennedy is changing Carter's diapers at home, so I don't have to. :)


Kennedy didn't let the birth of her baby brother slow down her trick-or-treating. As you can see, she was quite the cute bumble bee. She has been great while we have been gone but she is getting impatient to meet him.

We would like to introduce everyone to the newest member of our family.
